ROOTING IS NOT CUSTOM ROM

The same method to achieve both (unlock bootloader via htcdev) is the common factor

rooting by itself does NOTHING to improve anything on your phone, it gives you admin rights to then make further changes / mods (some of which can improve battery life sure)

but the biggie is custom ROM (like ARHD mentioned above) which is flashing an entire OS, thats where people talk about getting better batt life etc.

I suggest you go to XDA and get reading...
Both void your warranty and as such I can't with all good conscience recommend anything requiring the use of htcdev to gain even root access.
